    Yesterday was a Yuri Gagarin's flight day, very appropriate date to receive it. Wearing today as well of course :)

    That Devosa is an nicely legible watch, something I'm growing to appreciate as I grow older.

    Now I do like that. I'm a sucker for utra-legible black dial/white markers and hands.

    I bet it's 44mm or something stupid.

    EDIT: Just seen it's 42mm. Oh well, saves me money I guess.

    Size is pretty fine - 42 mm diameter with very reasonable 48,3 mm lug to lug

    Postie just dropped this off, quick wind and straight on the wrist. Loving it and loving the titanium. This is my second successful eBay pickup this year - just goes to show there are still some good guys and fine watches out there if you are careful.

    Arrived today via a forum trade - Damasko DSub3 - and I am besotted

    Typically for Damasko, pictures don't do it justice - it's a well-balanced and super-legible design and the splash of colour suits the season.

    I'd been looking for a DSub2 (blue dial) for a while, but this will actually be more versatile and I suspect is ultimately the better choice.








    The supplied strap was perfect, but fancied more colour, so onto an ebay cheapie for now.

  18. #13118
    Nice Damasko 👍
    But that strap is too much for me. I believe it is for Garmin.

    The Incoming / New Arrival Thread

    Got my hair cut in town today and thought Id look in the ADs window, they had both the original BB58 and Blue so tried both on and the bronze, came away with the original 58, I know Im a little late to the party with this one but this is what Id call my first luxury watch purchase and with there being little change of getting a No Date Submariner anytime soon this will fill my watch itch for now.
    Got the box hidden from the other half as she would probably go mental, Ill pick a good time to tell her but that isnt now!

    Congratulations on this one, you're not the only one to be late to the party, I grabbed one myself two days ago!

    Definitely a great watch overall

    I agree it is a mite understated, but I have a couple of Zuludiver and Barton straps on order that should really zing it up!

    I am a big fan of the 58s and popped into my AD to drop off a service and the 925 is certainly completely unnecessary but I think its a cool colour way and the Matt silver is interesting.

    Now and again I see I shot of the BB58 that makes me think I should sell everything and just get one of these... this is such a shot! Superb.

    Is that the one released very recently? If so, nice catch - I'm really keen to see how the silver patinates over time. I personally love the look of old silver!

    It has taken a little time to arrive but it has only increased the anticipation.



    A Seiko H556-501A sold as not working I had bought a cheap donor but the only thing I needed to do was to replace the battery. And not a minute too soon judging by what I removed :



    I really don't think it has been worn. Original strap (not sure about the compass) no swirlies, no DNA.





    To say I'm chuffed would be an understatement.

    Yes, thats the one. Not the best pictures but the taupe colour is really unusual, will get some better pictures up.

    I bought a BB58 (Nato Black) just after Xmas after previously trying one 10 months earlier.
    Tried the Blue too and was really torn but went with the original.
    Dont think Id want one as my only watch but it slots into my modest little collection nicely.
    I think theyre great value for money and even though the bezel alignments slightly off Im not bothered and just set it slightly off-click myself.
    (I am aware that this would send loads of you on here under !).

    Must admit, the photos - specifically, my abject lack of camera skills - have made it look a more livid shade of orange than it is, but yeah, whatevs, I like it

    I don't know if I would let everything else go to keep only this one, but that's a seriously satisfying watch indeed!
    I just sized the bracelet for myself and I think it looks amazing on it in the flesh.
    Unfortunately I can't get the perfect fit

    Cheers, it's just a modest picture taken with an old iPhone, but the warm tones of the 58 are making it easy to photograph!

    The case feels really right proportions wise, definitely a watch worth a try I think

    Looks good, really interesting release. Colour seems to be a bit bipolar depending on on the light. Very cool.

    Gone full Casino Royale!
    Not a new watch but decided to fork out on a new genuine strap and buckle. While not cheap, I am very happy with the look and feel.

    Over the moon to finally have an El Primero on the wrist. Have been a big fan of the CP2 since the first LE was released, and this for my tastes is the best of the lot, with the added bonus of having a display back to view one of THE iconic movements. To say I'm chuffed would be an understatement!!

    Well, what I actually bought was a Porsche Boxster (nothing too exciting, a used one), but had to get something for the missus too so this one:

    Ah the circle of (watch) life. I bought a 2254 20 years ago and thought it was a fantastic watch but I hankered after an ExpII and had to sell it. I was sensible then and only owned and could afford one watch so I am pleased to have a mint 2254 back on my wrist. It serves as a counterpoint to the modern trend for thicker watches, I cannot get over how thin it is, another thing that has been lost with the trend to bigger and more style over sustenance design. Its classy, understated and legibility is great for old eyes. I was a bit concerned that I had been hasty and allowed nostalgia to drive my decision to buy it but now I can truly say no, I was drawn back to it because it's a cool watch.

    My first Panerai the PAM 01055, the Submersible Verde Militaire, had my eye on this since a SC listing that I stupidly didnt respond to in time. Absolutely stunning watch, love the colours and the LE of 500 issued makes it more unique, also registered it to get the 8 year warranty which didnt appear to have been activated, which is a bonus.

    Managed to get one from Watchfinder, having traded my Bremont H4 Hercules, have to say the process with them was excellent.

    Undone Popeye and Friends edition. Model: "Aqua Brutus" m I love Undone`s approach. So playful, cool, fun, but still good quality and good price.
    This one is a bit bigger, than my usual size, but it comes with decent water resistancy (up to 200 m), case with cool blue DLC and semi transparent dial. Movement is automatic (Seiko). And packaging is awesome. It comes in a "can witch spinach" (of course can is plastic, but not the top cover, and spinach is a shredded paper) - again fun and original. Thumbs up from me :-)
